Got Pain? Swearing Can Help

I have been known to let a few  f***n expletives fly from time to time when I’m p***sed off.  It  makes me feel better, and that’s what it’s all about, right?

If you’re in pain and you don’t have any aspirin or ibuprofen close by – don’t worry. According to researchers in England, just throw out a couple of swear words, and your pain could subside in no time, the Telegraph reported.

A study by researchers at Keele University found that letting a few expletives fly out of your mouth can be a powerful painkiller, especially for people who never swear.

For the study, student volunteers placed their hands in buckets of ice cold water, and were asked to swear repeatedly. The students were then instructed to put their hands back in the frigid water, but this time, they were told to repeat a harmless phrase.

In the end, the researchers found that the students who repeatedly swore were able to keep their hands submerged in the ice water for a longer period of time.

The research team believes the “pain-lessening effect” occurs because swearing triggers the ”fight or flight” response.
